"The best drug policy we could have is one that reduces the harms of drugs and reduces the harms of government drug control policies. We are turning a corner," says Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. Nadelmann, along with Mary O'Grady of the Wall Street Journal, John Tierney of the New York Times, and New York City Council Member Melissa Mark Vivierto (D-Manhattan/Bronx), took part in a panel discussion following a New York City screening of the film "America's Longest War" on September 24th, 2013.
The film's director, Reason TV Senior Producer Paul Feine, led the conversation that focused on drug prohibition, its terrible costs in America and abroad, and hopeful signs that the United States will move towards a more sensible drug policy.
"America's Longest War" is the first feature-length documentary produced by Reason and is currently available for purchase on Amazon.
